Loads of Hemingway memorabilia along with classic cocktails. Get past the Colin (head barman) and you are accepted into a small group of discerning imbibers. Only knock is the lack of food after 11:00 but the bar snacks are great and they don't run out. Interesting people and great conversations. Arrived the second night after a JB concert in full...

We arrived in the evening at the Ritz Hotel to sample the martini at Bar Hemingway rated "best in the world" in the Michelin Guide. Bar Hemingway is a small "manly", cozy bar that oozes casual class. Roman was our bartender and is a celebrity in his own riight. He made our martinis with superior expertise, then casually "worked" the... More

This bar is sensational and everything you expect from a top bar. Unbelievable service! I simply cannot remember service ever being this good. Yes, it's expensive but you pay for the experience, not the alcohol. Limited snacks menu. Recommend the smoked salmon (delicious) but not the mini hem burgers (Hemingway must have loved maccas). Sit, enjoy, drink and make plans... More

If you're ready for the sticker shock (30 Euro) drinks, then this is the place for you. The Clean Dirty Martini is incredible and savoury. The Bar usually would have a fair number of tourists but Hemingway really did hang out there. Not a bad way to enjoy one of the finest hotels in Paris (without staying there!)

The only place to have cocktails in Paris, Colin & Roman provide the perfect atmosphere, tall tales and long drinks in the most intimate of surroundings with fellow travellers from around the world, our home from home for 3 nights we stayed at Ritz Paris in August. Oh to be back there!

I have been to Paris 15 times, and have been to the Bar Hemingway only 12 times. What was I thinking the other 3 times??? The decor is unbelievable. The drinks are outstanding. The bartenders are extremely helpful, friendly, and accommodating. I have several favorite bars in the world, but this is #1! Now that it has re-opened, and apparently... More

Snuck in to see how the 1% lives.... Fancy! Wild drinks for a lot of money but you go for the experience and an experience it was! The bartender was something out of a movie talking about naming drinks after clients... My Pimms was the grandest I have ever seen, even had a white rose! The scotch pours were healthy... More
